moving to Singapore with my wife, Social Visit Pass question

Postby wwww » Mon, 09 Feb 2009 10:14 pm

Guys,

I was just admitted for the Nanyang MBA. Now, I was wondering if my wife would be able to work with the Social Visit Pass that she receives when she moves to Singapore along with me.

If she (Japanese), would want to work in Singapore during my studies, what would be her best visa option?

Thanks for your input. :D

I'm pretty sure you cant work with a Social Visit Pass (I am going to assume you are referring to a Long Term Visit Pass?)

If so, read this:

It may be of some use to you.

The Nanyang website just talks about a "social visit pass" which can be applied for along with the student visa:

http://www.ntu.edu.sg/isc/immigration/P ... _Pass.aspx

Would this "social visit pass" result in a "long term visit pass"?

I am not sure whether her qualifications are sufficient to apply for a standalone "employment pass" and I am therefore looking for a possibility to get her a work permit along with my student pass.

Any ideas how this can be done?

She has to find an employer who is willing to employer her as it's the employer who has to file for the employment pass, not the employee. You cannot get an employment pass without an employer. And no, she cannot work on an LTSVP (Long Term Social Visit Pass). If her English is good, she could probably find a position as an interpreter or maybe contact JAC Recruitment as they specialize in Japanese oriented positions. Maybe she can find a position with one of the many Japanese firms here.

There's plenty of secretarial/sales type work for native Japanese speakers in Singapore, most of it is just badly paid (<$3000/mo).
